The two ladies on Saturday's UFC Japan fight card have no problem using what they got to get what they want.

It seems rematches have become more and more common in MMA. Why? Because rivalries sell in combat sports. Had it not been for the bad blood between Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate, women's MMA probably wouldn't be where it is today. A recent grudge between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen also helped MMA skyrocket in popularity in Brazil. More than animosity is needed to make a great rivalry, though. If an unproven prospect starts throwing verbal jabs at Jon Jones, that alone isn't going to get them read news >>

Demetrious Johnson did what he always does at UFC 174. But was it enough to sell fans on buying future pay-per-views featuring him and the flyweight division? Well, judging from the comments on the Internet, it depends on who you ask. There are plenty of fans who enjoy Johnson for what he is: one of the most technical fighters in the game today.

The other day, I had a cool water sandwich and a Sunday-go-to-meeting bun. Bow bow bow. Whaddaya want for nothing? A meeeeaaaat biscuit?

According to "Kos," Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will have no choice but to bring Georges St-Pierre back into the fold by the end of the year, because its current 170-pound champion can't sell pay-per-views. Maybe former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight number one contender Josh Koscheck is just bitter, since the last two division champions hold victories over him. Or, maybe he's telling the truth. In a roundtable discussion for ESPN, "Kos" told the host he doesn't think read news >>

Long-time UFC Welterweight contender Josh Koscheck told ESPN that current champ Johny Hendricks can't sell pay-per-views and that this would force the UFC to "pay up" for the return of ex-champ Georges St-Pierre.

From an ESPN roundtable (transcribed by MMA Torch): "I buy [ read news >>
